Tanzania consists of a mainland area (the former Tanganyika) and the island of Zanzibar. A German colony (German East Africa) from the late 19th century, Tanganyika became a British mandate after World War I and a trust territory, administered by Britain, after World War II, before becoming independent within the Commonwealth of Nations in 1961. It was named Tanzania after its union with Zanzibar in 1964
